Rise offline

Jun 23, 2017

Hi All,

I am new to 360 following and upgrade from SL2. Loving 360 SL by the way, what a difference.

Anyway I am now starting to do some projects on Rise and have seen on the articulate FAQ about accessing a Rise module offline.

I have read through the FAQ and other posts but do not seem to be having any luck. I wondered if anyone was able to provide, shall we say, a dummies guide to how this can be achieved.

Basically I gather that a learner can download the Rise module from the LMS whilst online onto their device. Then from there open the module and use it when offline. Am i correct?

If so this is where I am stuck.

I followed the instructions to save as web file then extracted the zip file. When looking for the index.html all I found was a chrome symbol labeled as Chrome HTML document (have attached image). Is this right?

The next issue is I am struggling with what option to upload i use in the LMS 'add activity' menu (moodle based 2.7) I have added a screen shot.

I hope this makes sense and appreciate anyone's advice.

I don't believe there is an option to download it from the LMS, but you can insert a zip file on moodle for the user to download as described in the FAQ. This option will not track in the LMS.

The index file you image is the correct file (you have extension switched off in explorer, if you right click and file and choose properties under the details tab you can see the extension.

Hey there Adam,

Phil is right on the money! You can give your learners access to the index.html file for offline viewing. Be sure to also include a note that offline viewing is supported in Google Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.

I don't have much LMS-specific experience, so hopefully another Moodle-user in the community can point you towards the correct Moodle option for making the index.html file available to your learners.

Dear Alyssa,

In that article downloading Rise is addressed. What if our learners use iPads , tablets - (no download and local file storage possible) - is it still possible to access Rise courses in offline mode somehow? 

Is it possible to download videos only? (If a learner views the course which has videos, and he would like to save only videos)

It may be that iOS 11 where users have access to files may be able to make this work, in iOS10 I don't think you could make this work, unless of course you convert to an app using phone app and either add to app store or side load it,

 Downloading the videos you could put a button below the video to download the video.

Hey John,

As I mentioned earlier in this thread, you can give your learners access to the index.html file for offline viewing, but iOS devices don't have a way to load the course into the local storage of the device. I did see one community idea on how to load on an Android device, so it's worth checking that out.

I hope that helps!

A Rise app, so users can download content offline, would be great! I am trying to create courses/interactive manuals for people to access in the field on their phone. The problem is, if they lose internet in the field, they can't use the content. It would be great to have a Rise app, so users could access the manuals and save them offline. I've been testing the iphone/chrome "save offline" features, but they don't really work for Rise. Keep me posted on this!
